A place to be (re)educated in Newspeak

Why is this blog named this way?

Well, there's the obvious reasons of course. Apart from those, in a previous life I was required to attend JavaOne. I noticed that the room where they handed out goodies to speakers was numbered 101.

Apparently, no one found this disturbing. I guess they haven't come out with "The complete idiot's guide to Orwell for dummies in 21 days" yet.
In any event, I hope to find time to occasionally post thoughts about programming languages and platforms.

I'm curious, and I'm sure many others are too - what will you be working on now that you've left Sun?

The reason for the blog name is that you like the BBC show "room 101"

:-)

PS. Please, let the public know where you went after SUN

Hi Gilad...

so, the King is dead: long live Room 101.

(I'm tempted to make jokes about rat-oriented programming but I'm sure I shouldn't).

correct ?
